My Brain on Poetry

Poetry Challenge Day 247 (Wed Jun 8)

Poetry is tough.
You have to have a brain to write poetry.
Attempting to write poetry
(as I am trying to do)
is a huge personal exposure.

You are exposing all you faults and weaknesses
to anyone who might care to observe.
Not to mention the fact that your brain
may not really be up to the task
you have set before it.

Then why make the attempt.
When I started my year long journey into poetry
I honestly (naively) thought there was a chance
I could pull it off.
I now know just how hard a task that truly is.

I have days where I think
I have failed miserably.
For some reason I continue,
I suppose because quitting is worse than failure.
And yes, I’m calling this a poem.
